Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright and lively with notes of tropical fruit, and hints of lychee, muscat, and rose petals, this Riesling is beautifully balanced and features flavours of green apples, pears, and lemon zest. The versatile and slightly off-dry wine is great to enjoy on its own, and it pairs with almost any dish.

Winemaker Notes
Made with grapes from our estate vineyard and a vineyard in Vernon. The grapes were given 12 hours skin contact after crushing and were then lightly pressed to collect the free run juice. After daily tasting, the ferment in stainless steel was arrested naturally by dramatically lowering the core temperature of the wine until it was no longer active. This left just enough residual sugar to balance the higher acid levels traditional in this varietal. 5 months of lees contact gave this terroir driven Riesling an elegant and aromatic palate.
Food Pairing Notes
This slightly off-dry Riesling is very food-friendly. It will balance well with Asian and spicy Mexican dishes.
